WearicsTM has been designed for use by the general public.

Devoid of convenient and effective tools for continuous monitoring of the heart, the general public is generally left unguarded in day to day life. This is particularly concerning to people who have a history of, or are at risk of, heart disease or heart attack.

Cardiac disease is the number one killer in the world. In the US alone, one person suffers a heart attack every 34 seconds. Every 60 seconds, someone dies. And the hard reality is, 25% of all heart attacks lead to immediate death; while another 25% will die within 2 years.
Being able to control that, and to have the means to detect any possible problems, can mean peace of mind (and the difference between life and death) for many at risk. There’s no reason you shouldn’t wear WearicsTM.

It requires no medical knowledge, there’s no preparation, no discomfort; and it provides valuable and comprehensive data to determine the state of your health. It is also affordable.

Men over the age of 45 and women 55 years and over


As you get older, the risk of heart attack gets greater. The average age of death from heart attacks is 64 years old. Men over the age of 45 and women over 55 are at higher risk than those who are younger.

Personal or family history of heart disease


If your siblings, parents or grandparents have had early heart attacks (before 55 years old for male; and 65 years old for females), you may be at increased risk. If both of your parents have suffered from heart disease before the age of 55, your risk is 50% greater than the general population. Survivors of heart attacks are also at an increased risk of recurrent infarctions and have an annual death rate of 5% - six times that of people who do not have any history.

People with high blood pressure


Around 69% of people who suffer a heart attack have blood pressure higher than 140/90 mm Hg. In the US, 1 in 3 adults (or around 75 million people) have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, which makes them more at risk; and only half of these people actually have their blood pressure under control. That’s 37.5 million people at risk of heart attack.

People suffering diabetes or metabolic syndrome


If you have diabetes you are 2-4 times more likely to develop cardiovascular disease than people without diabetes. It is the leading cause of mortality for diabetics.

Unhealthy lifestyles


Smoking and long-term exposure to secondhand smoke, stress, obesity, illegal drug use and immobility all increase the risk of a heart attack.

Athletes


WearicsTM can, and should, also be worn by young people, particularly those engaged in rigorous physical activity (for example, professional sportsmen).

Although most young people do not suffer from ischemic heart disease, they can still have structural heart abnormalities and arrhythmia which may result in “sudden death”, the risk of which is higher during intense physical activity.

Crews requiring medical monitoring during work


Fire fighters, race car drivers, air crews (pilots), special army units, and so on, require comprehensive medical supervision during their activity. Wearing a seamless shirt that doesn’t limit their activity is ideal, particularly one that can be modified to suit. WearicsTM modifications can include the use of fire-resistant fabrics, pressure sensors and blood oxygen level monitors.
